There is a chain of bookstores in NYC called Shakespeare & Co. Booksellers. There used to be 4 stores, now there are 3 and after the end of this month there will only be two left. At first I was sad, then I thought “Discounted books!” So today I went there and got some books for 30% off.
Death Scenes: A Homicide Detective’s Scrapbook text by Katherine Dunn; Edited by Sean Tejaratchi. I have wanted this book from the first time I saw it at a major chain bookstore but it was more than I was willing to pay for. Now I got it for 30% off.
Talking to Rudolph Hess by Desmond Zwar. Rudolph Hess was Adolf Hitler’s deputy Fuhrer, he was captured by the British in 1941 and convicted of war crimes at Nuremberg.
Dillinger’s Wild Ride by Elliott J. Gorn. The year that made America’s Public Enemy Number One.
Mickey Cohen by Tere Tereba. The Life and Crimes of L.A.’s Notorious Mobster
Gotti: Rise and Fall by Jerry Capeci and Gene Mustain
Mafia Dynasty by John H. Davis
Two other books I recently acquired are:
The Historic Murder Trial of George Crawford by David Bradley. An ARC from Librarything, so this book is on my list to read next.
Devil’s Knot by Mara Leveritt. The true story of the West Memphis Three.
